Those are very nice. Where's your QTH?

North of Warrnambool, Victoria. Australia.
In a very (electrically) quiet country location, all power lines are underground.

In all of these I still had not set the slant as you can see. But I have found even with the slant correction it doesn't always work super well.
The signals from both VMC/VMW vary a lot here, when they are good, they are good usually consistently S9 on the SDRUno meter. Being winter here there is a lot of noise and fading. There is a transmission at 0600z (from memory) which is beamed to Tasmania, it must be incredibly directional as I have never been able to hear it.

I am hoping over the summer months that I will be able to receive some of the Kyodo News faxes, can't read a scrap of Japanese, but it would be cool to receive/decode it.
Also being trying for faxes from Kodiak and the famous Berring Sea - but the low power and time of year is against me right now :)
